In WHM/List Accounts, I have a Domain which we will call Site1.com
If you go to cPanel/Domains, there's what I call a subdomain, which I will call Site2.com.
The customer has cancelled all services for Site1.com. "A" record, "MX" record, DNS records no longer has any information for Site1.com. Site2.com remains active.
There is one email account under cpanel/Email Accounts for site2.com. There is also a web site under Site1.com which site2.com points to.
I would like to take Site2.com and make it a parent domain (account) in the List of Accounts and delete Site1.com. Is there a way to do move Site2.com without deleting Site1.com (which would delete site2.com) and starting over?
If not, then what would be best practice to delete and create a new site when the site already exists as what I call a subdomain under another account?
If I create the account Site2.com and then add the one email account, will email start flowing into it automatically or what happens if site2.com resides in two places? Or, after I create site2.com as an account (parent domain) I would delete the other immediately and email flow will go to the new account? I also have to take into consideration moving the web site data to the new account. Is there an easy way to do that without scripts? :) So, what if I create site2.com, add the email account, but don't delete Site1.com which contains site2.com as a subdomain, would the web site still work until the data is moved over or would the site go down? Sorry, trying to picture the different scenarios. Thank you.
